While Pokemon is still popular in the US, Nintendo and Level-5’s attempt to recapture that audience through Yo-kai watch is an ambitious one. Finally, the series has hit the West, along with an anime series and merchandise to boot. It’s a good thing that the first entry in the game series is a good one…although, […]

It’s been a year since Bandai Namco put out Tales of Hearts R for the Vita, and once again RPG fans have been awaiting this game since it launched earlier this year in January in its home country. Now it’s finally here, and it delivers a solid Action-RPG experience, despite having a less interesting story […]

Rogue-likes are making a comeback to the PC scene, even if they aren’t in the same realm of popularity of the Metroidvania genre. Crypt of the Necrodancer, however, does something a bit different to set it apart from previous and current efforts. However, its steep challenge might turn away most players and keep only the […]

Back in 2010 the original Xenoblade released in Japan for the Nintendo Wii, and a European version released about a year later as Xenoblade Chronicles. Nintendo of America kind of dragged its foot about a North American release, but thankfully in 2012 they answered the demand for the game, using Nintendo of Europe’s localization. It […]

After selling millions and being a cultural phenomenon in Japan, the Nintendo 3DS family of systems role-playing game YO-KAI WATCH is coming to North America. Published by Nintendo, YO-KAI WATCH centres on a boy who gets a special watch that lets him befriend and help mischievous Yo-kai* and later summon them to fight other Yo-kai. […]

With how perennially popular dinosaurs are among kids (and even adults like me), it’s a wonder there aren’t more games designed to exploit that fact. Fossil Fighters is a series that debuted here on the DS back in 2009, but mostly slipped under the radar despite some decent reviews. It’s back now as a 3DS […]

Oreshika is a game I almost though wouldn’t make the trip across the sea. But the digital platform of PSN, and Sony’s localization and marketing teams have convinced SCEA to bring the title to western audiences. And the game is a solid JRPG experience with a great visual flair, so it was worth the wait.

The Dusk series of Atelier games has been pretty interesting. It’s tried to make a slightly darker story line where the world’s outlook is a bit bleak, while still being cute and adorably light-hearted. And it’s succeeded in that endeavor, and even addressed some long-running issues regarding gameplay mechanics and balance. Each entry saw improvements […]

Twelve years have passed since the release of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, right down to the date of November 21. This Remake was also released on the same day, which is fitting. Pokémon Omega Ruby seeks to update a game that was in much need of a fresh coat of paint. And for the most […]
